“Raccoon Tour is signed to I Surrender Records! I had never considered working with a label until they reached out to me OVER TWO YEARS AGO in August 2018. Since then, we’ve been working together to make Raccoon Tour as good as it could be,” Raccoon Tour shares. “Having I Surrender Records has been integral to the development of this project, and they’ve allowed me to do and imagine things that I didn’t think were possible before. Especially as a 21 year old where I have so much on my plate, it’s been a blessing having them help shoulder a lot of the burden of starting a new music project.”
Raccoon Tour is the musical brainchild of Boise, ID native Nate Burr (aka NateIsLame on Youtube, who has amassed almost 300K subscribers). Combining ukulele-driven, pop-centric melody with ferocious punk and atmospheric shoegaze inspired instrumentation, Burr blends autobiography and the fantastic into a blend of emo introspection and suburban dystopia. The project’s debut single, “Sofarinrunning,” was released in May 2018, along with “Sorry Sarah” on Halloween the same year. A strange and atmospheric version of “Sofarinrunning” was released on Halloween 2019 as well. Their debut album which will be produced by Brett Romnes (The Front Bottoms, I Am The Avalanche, Lincoln) will be released in 2021.
